After another road loss on Saturday afternoon, West Virginia fell one spot in the AP Top-25 Poll for the second week in a row.
The Mountaineers (18-5, 6-4 Big 12) appear at No. 14 in this week’s poll, one spot down from No. 13 in last week’s. WVU defeated the Iowa State Cyclones at home on Wednesday. The Mountaineers won 76-61 and were lead by Oscar Tshiebwe’s 16-points, 10-rebound double-double.
The team then lost to Oklahoma on the road Saturday. It is already WVU’s fourth road loss in the Big 12 this season. The Sooners won 69-59 behind 27 points from Kristian Doolittle.
The Mountaineers are currently for third in the Big 12 with the Texas Tech Red Raiders with a 6-4 conference record. Ahead of them in the standings are Baylor (21-1, 10-0) and Kansas (20-3, 9-1). The other Big 12 teams ranked in the AP Poll are No. 1 Baylor, No. 3 Kansas and No. 24 Texas Tech.
This is the ninth consecutive week the Mountaineers have been ranked this season. They entered the rankings at No. 25 and got as high as No. 12 on two occasions.
This week the Mountaineers will play both of the teams ahead of them in the Big 12. Kansas will come to the WVU Coliseum on Wednesday and then travel to Waco, Texas to play the Bears on Saturday.
